Dolly Parton’s America is hosted by Jad Aumrad and produced by Shima Oliaee at WNYC Studios. This series takes a deep dive into Dolly Parton as a whole, focusing on how she came to be loved by so many different people. As someone who wasn’t super familiar with Dolly, I found myself turning to google for physical pictures of her and all the different aspects mentioned in the podcast. My project attempts to collect all those images into one collage. Thus, creating a space where listeners can go to obtain a visual aid to the podcast. My collage contains a history of Dolly Parton, it shows her through her many stages in her career, as well as including her many accomplishments mentioned in the podcast: Dollywood, 9 to 5, and Dolly’s Stampede. Dolly’s identity is in part created by her presentation, the big blond hair becoming a well know trademark of Dolly Parton.
